I took the woofer out for a walk tonight and saw my first Christmas tree in someone's window.

What's the matter with these people ?

Personally I wouldn't even bother, but the missus always wants the tree up. It usually goes up a week before Xmas and down before new year. That's enough.

Some people I know put theirs up last week. They then rip them down on boxing day which I find bizarre to be honest.

Mine goes up on the first weekend in December sometimes the second. I make and fit Christmas door bows on properties as part of my business. I have had 50 orders in my book since OCTOBER for them. I start fitting on Tuesday. It's barking mad I will admit but I am not about to turn the business down!

Kids like to put the tree and lights up the first weekend in December. Itís a pain in the arse to be honest especially the outdoor lights

I'm "Bah humbug" as well.

We don't have a Christmas tree in our house, nor decorations etc etc.

I don't look at any cards we are sent and my wife daren't put them on display.
Cannot stand all those Christmas carols and christmas songs.

I get bloody annoyed when I see all the Christmas paraphernalia in the shops nor do I like to see decorations and Christmas trees in pubs, in fact I make negative comments when I walk into local pubs and see they have adorned it with decorations.

I was once asked if I could be "Father Christmas" and I can assure you my response contained some industrial language.

I agree, Willo. It's all unnecessary. For children, okay.

We always have a real tree, so it is always a blalance between the extremes of buying too early , then having to buy again as the needles have fallen off the first one, or wait until quite late, so all the good trees are gone.
Generally around the 20th, or the closest weekend to. We have no kids, so there is no urgency to put presents under the tree.
Tree comes down on New Years Day

10 years back I replanted our rooted tree after use in my mum's back garden. It was 6ft tall then. When she moved house a couple of years ago, I reckon it was 20ft.
Lucky new owners, they just need a ladder and some outside lights and jobs a good 'un

Do you put your boot through the TV when Christmas programmes come on ?

Val Doonican
Bing Crosby
Jimmy Stuart
Muppet Christmas
The Great Escape
et al

Also I wouldn't call myself a Christian, but I hate the way a religious festival (for those who want to believe) has been hijacked into a huge commercial show-piece of greed and wanton excess, where 'Christmas' has been shamefully replaced by "Winter Festival", etc

When our daughter was young I did the Christmas things for her but through gritted teeth.It was bloody difficult I can assure you.

For the record my wife and I don't buy each other any Christmas presents.Our daughter buys my wife but she doesn't buy me anything.

Few years ago, my wife was telling a 'Sun' journalist friend what I am like regards Christmas and he turned to me and said that I was a "miserable f....r"

I don't watch any Christmas programmes.
One year when I had my mother and mother-in-law over on Christmas day, my wife put on an album by 'Bobby Crush' which they brought over and I went into a bloody rage.
Wasn't my idea to invite them over and I was now been subjected to this dastardly music.They also brought over an album by 'Russ Conway' and the 'Ted Heath Band' but they never got played.
